Four Staple Pieces to Have in Any Wardrobe

FashionBrittany Rice

Some people tend to have a harder time when it comes to them wanting to be “trendy” or “fashionable”. We have also all been at the point where we stare at our closet for a long period of time trying to decide what to wear. Here are four of my favorite staple clothing pieces for my wardrobe:

The Blazer:

Blazers are such a fun item to just throw on top of anything. My favorite type of blazer has to be the slouchy boyfriend fit. It makes it to where it is not super business-lady but still gives a nice sleek look to an outfit. Not only does it give any outfit a chic look to it, but it is still super comfortable! The other good thing about a blazer is that you can dress it up or down. My favorite way is to throw it on top of jeans and a graphic t-shirt paired with your favorite bootie, heels or sneaker. For a night out on the town you can wear it over a lacy bodysuit with a pair of slacks or jeans. A simple black blazer (x) will go with anything, and is probably the safest for those not looking to step out of their comfort zone. If you are wanting to step a little out of your comfort zone but aren’t fully ready to commit, then I suggest a black blazer with a velvet touch (x). The velvet will give your look a little texture while still staying simple. Even though the pink blazer (x) isn’t “out there” it is still a little more than the velvet or the simple black. My favorite part about the pink is the feminine touch it will add.

Bootie Heaven:

Booties are the perfect staple shoe, especially for the fall and winter season. You can just about pair booties with anything. Whether you have them peeking out of your wide legged pants or showing them off over your jeans, it’s a must have. Booties are a great way to add a little height while still staying comfortable. If you wanted to you could probably walk a couple miles in these and still feel perfectly fine. Black booties (x) are an essential item piece. They will match every outfit while keeping it sleek. What I like about the red (x) is how fierce they would look on. Just adding them to black jeans and a plain white t-shirt would add a lot of life to the outfit. If there was one item for you to grab off this list, I would highly suggest booties.



Blouses:

Blouses are a great way to dress up an outfit only just slightly. It also gives such a classic look. All you really need to do is throw a loose fitting blouse over a pair of jeans and your outfit is complete. What I like about button-up blouses (x)(x) is that you get to manipulate the shirt to look of your choice. You can unbutton a few at the top to give it an off the shoulder vibe or unbutton at the bottom and tie it. You can also add a lace body suit underneath for a night out. Blouses that are already tied (x) are also great since the job is already done for you. Silk blouses are great not only in pictures but also in giving a look a chic touch. The easiness of owning a blouse is why it makes for a great staple clothing item for your closet.

Fun Dress Pants:

Dress pants don’t have to be just for work activities. They are also great for every day wear. Any of the pants above would look perfect with just a plain t-shirt. Yes, it really is that easy with making dress pants more day-to-day. With the Burgundy front-zip pants (x), I would pair it with a chunky sweater and black booties. With patterned pants (x), like the checked ones in the middle, I typically like to just wear plain shirts or blouses with them. Topshop is for sure my top place to get dress pants from. For fit I prefer to get pants that are more flared because they make legs appear longer than they are.

Hope you were to find the useful when it comes to expanding your wardrobe. It sure has helped me to narrow down what key items work for me the most, it saves a lot of time too. Let me know some of your staple clothing items!
